    no thanks - will look closer next time

    I purchased this book thinking of heros...Pat Tilman is ---this book is NOT. So disappointed (this may or may not be how his day went.... this may or may not be what he was thinking...etc.} If I wanted to read about the Cardinals history or the history of his high school and all the stats...well I would have bought a book about that. Such a shame to pander on his rep. to come up with a book.

    he is a hero

    a total hero in everyway. people say oh well ever other soilder is just like him, but no there not they went into the service a lot of them because they had nothing and nowhere else to go. The fact that is is hero is because he already had everything and still went would anyone do that if they already had everything?

    Don't waste your money

    Unfortuntely this book represents the exact opposite of Tillman. It is re-hashed public comment and football statistics, published purely for profit. Pat was the real thing doing things for the right reasons.
